Dr. Loretta Clayton Named Dean of Graduate Studies

Congratulations to Dr. Loretta Clayton, who has been named dean of Middle Georgia State University (MGA)'s Graduate Studies effective October 1. Clayton, who had been leading the office as interim dean, is charged with the coordination of graduate programs, policies, and growth. 

“Middle Georgia State University has continued to strategically add new graduate programs, building a culture of graduate studies that feeds the entire institution,” says Clayton. “With the launch of MGA’s new Master of Business in Professional Leadership degree in January 2023, the University will have 12 graduate degrees: 8 professional master’s programs in the growing fields of Information Technology, Nursing, Teacher Education, Occupational Therapy, Technical and Professional Writing, Business Management, and Public Relations; a doctoral degree in Information Technology; 2 graduate certificates in Communications; and a post-master’s certificate in Nursing.

The presence of graduate programming can be aspirational for the University’s undergraduate students who see that advanced degrees can be within their reach after graduating from their bachelor’s degree program. I look forward to working with my colleagues to continue to bolster graduate education at MGA.”
